I have to give this one four stars too, because any movie with Lenny Bruce, Sally Marr, Timothy Ferrell, and Honey Harlow is definitely worth an hour of my time. And added bonus is that its directed by Phil Tucker.
The production standards are no worse than the television fare of that era, and the short length of this particular edit keeps it from becoming excruciating.

the fact that Lenny bruce and his wife are in this is reason enough for it to get a high rating from me,. the camp and historical value are there.. it's got the barfly thing going for it,. admitted,. you must like Lenny Bruce,. or this genre to enjoy this,. but if you do,. you will be thrilled. the bit parts,. the lingo,. the actors,. the bad and good acting,. it's funny if anything,. there's even animal acting! I enjoyed it's cheesiness and give it a four stars for time capsule camp!

About the Worst I Have Ever Seen
Terrible acting, editing, directing, sets, story - need I say more.

You won't believe your eyes and ears
Story and screenplay by Lenny Bruce who also costars. Produced by George Weiss of "Glen or Glenda" infamy. Directed by Phil Tucker who also was responsible for "The Cape Canaveral Monsters" and "Robert Monster." The result is just what you would expect - drop-dead awful. What pretends to be a plot centers around goings on at a crooked taxi dance joint. There is nothing which resembles acting. There are no production values, unless you consider sets which look like the backrooms of an abandoned warehouse. The sound recording is bad. (A boom mike doesn't appear to have been in the budget.) The scrapings which make up the cast include Ed Wood regular Timothy Farrell and Lenny Bruce's wife, Honey Bruce Friedman.
The video quality is acceptable. Fortunately there are many missing-frame dropouts to lessen the pain. (The original runtime is unknown.)
Absolutely a must see - but absolutely only once! Of course if you're a serious masochist, set your video player on continuous loop.
